Launched by Business Car Manager Magazine, the first ever Small Fleet Leasing Awards, supported by MAGMA Automotive, Network, and Volvo Car UK, recognise the substantial efforts made to provide car and van finance to the SME sector.
As small businesses are increasingly recognising the cash flow benefits of leasing over purchase – so independent leasing companies and franchised car dealers are offering better products and greater service to the SME.
Fleetdrive continue to stand out at the forefront of the delivery of plugged-in vehicles and expertise and consistently champion their use to new and existing clients.
With so few small fleet leasing companies putting real energy into the market for greener leasing, the judges were impressed by Fleetdrive’s enthusiasm and commitment for the sector.
The judges thought that Fleetdrive’s focus on low CO2 emissions and the demonstrated savings – plus the separate branding for electric vehicles – were highlights of the entry.
Selwyn Cooper, national corporate operations manager, Volvo Car UK and a judge of the Small Fleet Leasing Awards, said: “We are seeing a growing awareness of the financial impacts on small and medium businesses of the tax implications on their choice of vehicles. Coupled with an ever increasing awareness of the impacts of transport on our environment, means that as an industry we have to adapt ourselves to cater for this need. Fleetdrive demonstrates how well this can be achieved and are deserving winners.”
Fleetdrive have developed industry leading awareness and staff training programmes to further support the UK’s adoption of plugged-in vehicles and demonstrate that Electric Vehicles provide practical solutions for SMEs that reduce your carbon footprint and your fleet costs too.
“The winners really are the best of the best. If your small business is in the market to lease its company cars or vans, then this is the definitive list of the best small fleet leasing companies around,” commented editor Ralph Morton.
Mike Potter, Managing Director of Fleetdrive, said: “At Fleetdrive we are proud to receive this award and to be recognised by Business Car Manager, and some of the leading players in the fleet sector. It is our aim to make low-emission vehicles attainable to the SME market and it is extremely satisfying to have this recognised by others within the small fleet leasing sector.”
